Moments That Matter | A trip down memory lane

So it's that tme of year where we can't believe how quickly the year has passed and try to remember all that took place during the last 12 months.  As a mumma I feel I am so much more aware of the time passing as these little people I love get taller, gain more skills and talk so much more that even the week before.  I try to stop and watch them and take it all in, willing my brain the imprint these moments, the sounds of their voices, the way they say something... I even convince myself I will remember but unfortunately I know I have already forgotten more than I believed I would or even could.  I am so glad I have these images to help me remember.  I hope the memories come back to me just as quickly as more years pass.

These were some of the days I remember this year, all for various reasons. Some are memorable because of what we were doing, some for the feeling they left me with.  This is my family, my family is me.

Moments that Matter | Just a feeling...

With the beautifully warm winter days we have been having my daughter and I took time to play and feast outside in the sunshine whilst her little brother was napping.  It is always a moment to cherish when you get to spend quality time with just one of your babies.  You have more time, attention and patience to give to them, that is after you put up the most frustrating teepee of all time (seriously, an hour and a half!!).

We cuddled, played princesses waiting for their true loves kiss, danced and ate.  It was bliss and a simple few hours I will always remember with my three year old darling.

When I look back on these photos it isn't only the warmth in the air that makes it feel like spring, it is her. She is full of life and possibility, everything is beautiful and an adventure to her. In her own domain she is full of love and confidence and bossiness and a sense of calm. This is the side of her I love the best.

I would love it if you could follow the blog circle I have going with some awesome photographers and check out the moments that matter to Marlene.
